Brokeback Mountain Lands Golden Globes In Trouble
US Christian groups have accused the organisers of the Golden Globe Awards of unfairly favouring homosexual movies over commercial success.
Monday's (16JAN06) star-studded event saw gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain take home four awards, while DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Felicity Huffman won Best Actress for her portrayal of a transsexual with a gay prostitute son in new movie Transamerica.
Concerned Women for America member JANICE CROUSE says, "Once again the media elites are proving that their pet projects are more important than profit. None of these movies is a box office hit.
"Brokeback mountain has barely topped $25 million in ticket sales. If America isn't watching these films, why are they winning the awards."
Stephen Bennett of America's Straight Talk Radio, yesterday (17JAN06) declared, "When Hollywood is pumping out anti-family movies with sexually explicit, twisted and perverse themes that glorify homosexuality, transsexuality and every other kind of sexual immorality and then awarding itself for doing so, Middle America better take note.
"Hollywood exposed it's own corrupt agenda. (It) is no doubt out on a mission to homosexualise America."
